The all-composite T2 is the first block with no metal shackles or rivets to corrode: the lightest Harken soft-attach block ever. High-strength sideplates have no metal fasteners. Soft attachments reduce weight and noise, allowing the block to articulate to align with the load. The T2 Loop requires no knots, splices, or tools to install, sliding easily through the block head and over the anchor post for a secure connection. An SK-75 Dyneema loop is included. The attachment line is routed through the block head and sheave, reducing load on the sideplates and acting as a safety backup for your system.
